Cartils, which has offices in London and Amsterdam was appointed by Grolsch owner SABMiller in 2011 after a pitch against ‘multiple agencies’ according to Cartils group director of marketing and business development Christiaan Huynen.

The new design, which has already launched in The Netherlands, gives more prominence to the brand’s signature ‘G’ and sees a more vivid green and red accent added to bottle graphics.

The brand badge, which contains the identity, reinforces Grolsch’s brand values of independence, craftsmanship, authenticity and premium feel, according to Cartils, which says a brand world has been created ‘using a vivid green background in which the characteristic G stands out.’
